Amber Vinson, second Dallas nurse stricken with Ebola after treating Thomas Duncan, who died from the disease

ATLANTA, GA —  Doctors no longer detect Ebola in Dallas nurse Amber Vinson, her family said in a statement Wednesday.

Vinson will now be transferred out of isolation at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

“Amber and our family are ecstatic to receive this latest report on her condition,” Vinson’s mother, Debra Berry said. “We all know that further treatment will be necessary as Amber continues to regain strength, but these latest developments have truly answered prayers and bring our family one step closer to reuniting with her at home.”

Vinson is one of two Texas Presbyterian nurses who tested positive for Ebola after treating Thomas Duncan — the first reported case of the deadly virus in the U.S.

The other nurse, Nina Pham is in good condition at a medical center in Maryland.
